And It Won’t Eat Your Doughnuts and Jam

Will Orange Bear be replaced?

From the Wired Gadget Lab:

MIT’s Huggable robot, even in its current uncompleted state, is a technical marvel of communications and data accumulation.

The bear is lined with over 1500 sensors for direct data transmission, has cameras for eyes, a microphone field in the ears, and has an internal wireless PC. The ear mics give the robot ‘sound localization’ so it can directly interact with people in space, but the visual context from the cameras is even more impressive.
